In video taken near the Mantimahle Waterhole in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, a pride of lions takes down buffalo. While this is definitely an amazing sight to see so close to tourists, it is a reminder how powerful lions are.


Tour guide Martin Lange saw the lions firsthand.

“I had two American guests for a morning drive and at the top of the lady’s wish list was to see lions”, Lange told GS Features.

“I found the four male lions lying under a Magic Guarri bush and the lady was ecstatic when one lifted his head to see what was going on”, he continued. That’s when the two straggling buffalo appeared.

“Suddenly one lion lifted it’s head and saw the buffalo. Then all hell broke loose and the lions started the chase,” he said.

The one buffalo does escape, while the other makes a valiant and brave attempt to stand off the lion. Unfortunately, he is no match for four hungry lions.

Then the lion walks straight over to the tourists’ vehicle to take a nap in the shade, because at the end of the day he’s still really just a cat.
